Mendoza returns to SeaWolves after successful first MASL season

ORLANDO, Fla. (Nov. 12, 2019) – With the season opener just 10 days away, the Orlando SeaWolves have announced the re-signing of midfielder Jonny Mendoza. Per team and league policies, no further details were disclosed.

The Lyman High and Stetson product rejoins Orlando after playing in 19 games last season, scoring 8 goals and assisting on 5. Mendoza joined the SeaWolves for their inaugural season in 2018 after playing six years in the USL Championship for Orlando City SC, Rochester Rhinos, Orlando City B and Harrisburg City Islanders. 

"Jonny was a huge part of our team last season,” SeaWolves Head Coach Chris Kokalis said. “The leadership he brings to the team off the field is invaluable and his speed and first touch on the ball is a huge bonus on it. We can’t wait to have him back with us for this season.”

The SeaWolves will be hosting their 2nd annual Fan Fest on November 17th at Silver Spurs Arena. Doors open at 1 pm with a preseason game against the SeaWolves Reserves at 3 pm. Giveaway items, inflatables, live music, free food, merchandise, an autograph session, and much more! To reserve your free tickets please visit www.orlandoseawolves.com/fanfest.
